Running a PIII 500 at 645MHz: One man's journey

— 2:03 AM on November 28, 1999

My friend DivideBy0 from #hocp has made the big time with an article over at the Tech Zone about his overclocking exploits. He describes how he made it to CPU nirvana, running a PIII 500 at 645MHz, and he has some good advice where to get overclocking tips. There's even a cheesy picture of him at the end.

Not to be outdone, some Aussies have pushed a Celeron 433 to 650MHz using some super-cooling tricks, like pouring an "oil can" of Fosters over the CPU every half hour. Or something like that.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
